“This latest purchase order underscores our customers commitment to OTI as a company with the most advanced technologies and highest security standards. This traction also further solidifies us as a major player in the Russian and European markets,” said OTI’s CEO, Shlomi Cohen. “We look forward to a bright future in Eastern Europe as we continue to deliver best-in-class advanced payment solutions for Russia, one of our top strategic markets.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains certain non-GAAP measures, namely, adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, or adjusted earnings from continuing operations before interest, income tax, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations represents earnings before interest or financing expenses, income tax, depreciation and amortization, and further eliminates the effect of stock-based compensation expense and other expenses. OTI believes that adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations should be considered in evaluating the Company’s operations since it provides a clear indication of the Company’s operating results. This measure should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for the U.S. GAAP results. The non-GAAP measures included in this press release have been reconciled to the U.S. GAAP results in the tables below.

On Track Innovations Partners with The George Municipality Western Cape Government to Offer Smart Cards in South Africa’s Public Transportation System

Partnership Marks OTI’s First Cashless Payments Entrance to South Africa Outside of Fueling

ROSH PINNA, Israel – October 6th, 2018 — On Track Innovations Ltd. (OTI) (NASDAQ: OTIV), a global provider of near field communication (NFC) and cashless payment solutions, has partnered with Almex Transport Solutions ticketing machines for the George Municipality Western Cape Government to implement the Go GEORGE Smart Cards, a “smart card” solution for South Africa’s public transportation system which will replace the paper ticketing system currently used on buses in the region.

The project, called The George Integrated Public Transport Network (GIPTN), is aimed at launching a new and improved public transport system for South Africa. OTI’s wholly owned subsidiary, OTI Africa, will supply ultra-intelligent OTI TRIO cashless readers that will register the fare upon boarding the bus via contactless NFC technology, which inevitably will save much-needed time for public transport scheduling, as well as eliminating the need for correct cash change and cleaning up the paper tickets waste problem.

 

“This new partnership to assist in the implementation of a ‘smart card’ program in South Africa is meaningful, as it marks our second entrance into the payment market in South Africa,” said Shlomi Cohen, CEO OTIGlobal. “We are confident that our TRIO cashless readers will help ensure a smooth transition and greatly benefit those using public transportation in the region.”

GO GEORGE Smart Cards will be issued and facilitated by the Standard Bank, whereby cardholders can load trips in different packages and fare categories onto the card at Smart Card kiosks, registered by GO GEORGE Smart Card top-up vendors and participating Standard Bank vendors such as supermarkets, self-service kiosks, petrol stations, and restaurants.

“GO GEORGE is proud to announce the implementation of the long-awaited GO GEORGE Smart Card, resembling a flexible bank card and replacing the awkward paper ticket system,” said James Robb, GO GEORGE Manager. “The service will be available on starting November 15th, and OTI is providing a critical component to ensure a successful launch.”

About Go George

The George Integrated Public Transport Network (GIPTN) is a project aimed at launching a new and improved public transport system for George and surrounding areas. GO GEORGE is operated by the public transport operators with existing services in the George area. The first trial phase launched on 8 December 2014, with routes rolling out in phases over the following months. The aim is to provide a quality public transport service that is reliable, affordable, safe, convenient and accessible and contributes to a better quality of life for all.

On Track Innovations Receives MIR Certification For Russian Market

Receipt of MIR Certification Positions OTIV as a Leading Competitor in the Russian Payment Industry; OTI Expects to Deliver 5,000 Advanced Payment Systems in Q3 2018

ROSH PINNA, ISRAEL – August 22nd., 2018 – On Track Innovations Ltd. (OTI) (NASDAQ: OTIV), a global provider of near field communication (NFC) and cashless payment solutions, today announced that it has received the MIR National Card Payment System organization certification in the Russian market.

OTI expects to deliver 5,000 advanced payment systems to the Russian market in the third quarter of 2018, for which OTI will recognize a one-time sale, followed by a high-margin, recurring revenue stream over the long-term. Due to confidentiality, the terms of the contract cannot be disclosed.

The MIR certification was granted after tests between OTI and MIR concluded with zero errors.

This certification grants OTI’s Russian customers the ability to use OTI’s cashless payment solutions within the Russian market.

The Russian national payment system created the MIR payment card in 2014 with the primary objective of making sovereign payments fully independent of foreign organizations. As opposed to traditional international payment card transactions, MIR transactions cannot be suspended, as no external financial or governmental factors control their processing. By the end of 2016, 1.8 million MIR cards had been issued by 64 banks, and according to the Bank of Russia as of September 2017, a total of 30 million MIR cards are planned for release.

“We are very pleased to announce our receipt of the MIR certification, a key component of our strategy to penetrate the strategic Russian unattended payment market,” said Shlomi Cohen, Chief Executive Officer of On Track Innovations. “Our successful tests concluded with zero errors, making our solution a clear favorite for the industry. We currently expect to deliver at least 5,000 advanced payment systems to the Russian market in Q3 2018.”

On Track Innovations Ltd. Reports Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Revenues in First Half of 2018 Increase by 10% to $12.0 Million; Gross Margin in Second Quarter Increases to 52%

Rosh Pina, Israel – August 8, 2018 – On Track Innovations Ltd. (OTI) (NASDAQ: OTIV) (the “Company” or “OTI”), a global provider of near field communication (NFC) and cashless payment solutions, has provided a business update and announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Operational Updates:

  • In June, OTI received a purchase order for more than 3,000 cashless payment systems from Japan via its partner, Billing Systems Cooperation (TSEL 3623), a leading payment service provider. OTI will recognize a one-time sale, followed by a high-margin, recurring revenue stream over the long-term. By the end of the third quarter of 2018, OTI will have delivered a total of more than 10,000 advanced payment systems to Japan.
  • Expanded footprint in Poland through new government contracts:
    • In April, OTI secured a recurring revenue contract with the Polish National Post Office (Poczta Polska S.A.) to manage Warsaw’s public transportation “Smart City” card program (i.e. purchase or refill cards for travel via train, bus, or other mode of public transportation). OTI will be providing both the payment portion, as well as the software, in 272 terminals throughout post offices in Warsaw, whereby OTI will manage and control the entire sales and payment process.
    • In May, OTI signed one-year, $500,000 agreement to provide intermediation in the sale of train tickets for trains operated by Mazowieckie Railways in Poland. OTI will provide service to the Masovian Card and sharing information via the infokiosk using 84 ticket vending machines.
    • In June, OTI secured a four-year service contract with the Mazowieckie Railways company to provide and maintain their Smart Cart IT system in support of electronic ticket sales in Poland’s largest and most populous province.
  • In June, OTI received two technology awards from Global Brand Publications (GBR):
    • OTI PetroSmart, OTI’s South Africa based fuel management subsidiary, was named “Most Innovative Technology Company” in Africa.
    • OTI Europa, OTI’s European subsidiary, was named “Most Innovative Cashless Payment Solutions Provider” in Europe.
  • In July, OTI received a purchase order for 5,000 advanced contactless readers to the widespread Russian retail self-service market. OTI has also applied for the Russian Mir certification, a Payment System Established by The Central Bank of Russia. The company expects greater penetration once the Mir certification is officially approved.

 

 

 

Management Commentary

“We’ve continued to experience strong operational execution in our business, evidenced by several purchase orders and contracts in some of our key target markets, including Poland, Japan, and most recently, Russia,” said Shlomi Cohen, Chief Executive Officer of On Track Innovations. “As part of these initiatives, we have continued to invest in our growing list of esteemed certifications, and most recently applied for the Russian Mir certification that we expect to receive in short order, which most likely accelerates penetration in this key market. In fact, we’ve identified Russia as a potential strategic market for OTI, and in July, we received a purchase order for 5,000 advanced contactless readers to the widespread Russian retail self-service market.

 

“In the first half of 2018, we recognized revenues of more than $12.0 million, representing growth of 10% from the year-ago period, and experienced our third consecutive quarter of positive Adjusted EBITDA results as we drive towards profitability. Looking towards the third quarter of 2018, we are expecting double-digit revenue growth compared to the third quarter of 2017 as a result of execution across all business units as we continue gaining market share in the cashless payments arena.”

  • Total revenue in the second quarter of 2018 was $6.2 million, compared to $6.9 million in the same year-ago period. Revenues in the first half of 2018 increased 10% to $12.0 million, compared to $11.0 million in the first half of 2017.

In the first half of 2018, gross profit increased 11% to $6.3 million, or 52% of total revenues, compared to $5.7 million, or 52% of revenues, in the same year-ago period.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains certain non-GAAP measures, namely, adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, or adjusted earnings from continuing operations before interest, income tax, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations represents earnings before interest or financing expenses, income tax, depreciation and amortization, and further eliminates the effect of stock based compensation expense, patent litigation and maintenance expenses and other expenses. OTI believes that adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations should be considered in evaluating the Company’s operations since it provides a clear indication of the Company’s operating results. This measure should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for the U.S. GAAP results. The non-GAAP measures included in this press release have been reconciled to the U.S. GAAP results in the tables below.

On Track Innovations’ Partner, Apriva, Releases White Paper Affirming Ongoing Partnership for Deploying Next-Generation Self-Serve and Vending Technologies

The Strategic Fit Enables the Two Companies to Offer Merchants a Pre-Certified, Off-The-Shelf, EMV Solution for Self-Service Kiosks

ROSH PINNA, ISRAEL – August 7th, 2018On Track Innovations Ltd. (OTI) (NASDAQ: OTIV), a global provider of near field communications (NFC) and cashless payment solutions, has announced their partner, Apriva, a technology company providing an adaptive platform for omnichannel payments and secure mobile communications, has published a white paper titled, “OTI Brings Diverse Cashless Payment Solutions,” which affirms the ongoing partnership for deploying next-generation self-serve and vending technologies.

 

Apriva enables broad acceptance for attended and unattended payments, including off-the-shelf EMV solutions. OTI’s continued collaboration with Apriva facilitates the production of an adaptive platform for omnichannel payments and secure mobile communications. This pre-integrated payment solution services the ever-growing unattended payments kiosk market.  According to a recent white paper by Frank Meyer titled, “The Present-Day Kiosk and Its Benefit to Today’s Consumer,” the self-serve kiosk industry grew over 17% in 2017 and generated over $7.8 billion in annual sales.

 

“The OTI and Apriva cashless payments solution was the perfect choice for us,” said Renee Smith, President, and CTO of Parking BOXX. “The flexibility to manage both our EASE and CloudEASE portfolios with the same SDK, combined with the efficiency of an off-the-shelf, pre-certified EMV solution not only gave Parking BOXX a time-to-market advantage but also saved us the cost of months of integration and certification.”

 

The OTI/Apriva payment solution supports magnetic stripe reader (MSR) transactions, as well as EMV contact and contactless transactions with Elavon as the processing platform. This allows secure real-time, end-to-end data encryption and uses the industry standard, derived unique key per transaction (DUKPT) encryption method, without the cardholder’s card data stored. The Interactive Self-Service OTIKiosk Payment solution is available in the U.S. through the Las Vegas-based distributor, Unattended Card Payments Inc.

 

“OTI’s best in its class payment solution, combined with Apriva’s adaptive payment platform, brings our customers unmatched value, flexibility, and ease of integration, saving thousands of dollars and many months in development time and certification costs,” said Bill Gostowski, Vice President of Business Development at OTI America Inc. (a wholly owned subsidiary of OTI).
